The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
In a large bow, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least on hour (or overnight).

Preheat oven to 400°. Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

NOTE: After they are cool, I like to make an icing out of powdered sugar and milk and add a little food coloring. (I don't measure anything for it! I just get it to the thickness I like) Then I brush the icing on with a pastry brush and let it dry. You could also use your favorite decorator's icing.
